Served on Whole Wheat Buttermilk Sandwich Buns (recipe)

Additional Notes: 

*I like to use leftover chicken from roasted chickens for this.

*Make your own chicken gravy by melting 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons flour and cook and stir 1 minute, until bubbly. Add 1/2 cup water (or chicken broth) and 1/2 cup milk. Whisk in 1-2 teaspoons chicken base (or bouillon). Whisk until hot and thick (should bubble/boil for a minute or two).

Preparation Time: 

5 minutes (20 minutes if making gravy)

Cooking Time: 

5-10 minutes

Tammy's Review: 

This is a delicious hot chicken sandwich recipe. It's a great use for leftover chicken, and makes a quick lunch. You can also leave this in a crock pot until ready to eat or for serving at parties; just add additional chicken broth or water so that it doesn't get too dry. :) My rating: 10/10.


Please see the recipe above for my complete review! Thanks! ~Tammy
